Abhinandan flying fighter plane again depends on his fitness: IAF chief

Indian Air Force (IAF) chief B.S. Dhanoa on Monday said Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman will be allowed to fly a fighter plane again only if he is found physically fit.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Speaking to the media here, Air Chief Marshal Dhanoa said: “Abhinandan flying again depends on his medical fitness. If he is fit to fly a fighter plane then he will go back to the same unit.”

He said the physical fitness requirement for flying fighter planes are very stringent and the rejection rates are high at the entry level.
Queried about the number of casualties in the February 26 IAF strike in Balkot, Pakistan, he said it was for the government to give out the number.
“We don’t count casualties. We see whether the target is hit or not,” Dhanoa added.(IANS)
